Torn Paper Pumpkin

We are now officially several days into fall! It will probably be another week or two before we go to get our real pumpkins, but today, we made a paper pumpkin.

Materials Needed

  • Construction Paper (Orange, Green, and White)
  • Glue

This pumpkin craft is super easy and has no prep work other than gathering the materials. To start, I had my toddler tear up the orange construction paper. Next, I gave her the green to tear up.

After the paper was torn, I set it aside and gave her the glue bottle. I told her to make a circle with the glue. If your child is a young toddler, you may need to guide their hands for this step!

Next, I gave her the orange construction paper to cover the glue.

To finish, I helped her put some glue on the top of the pumpkin and then gave her the green paper she tore to glue on.

This simple pumpkin took about 10 minutes and is a great way to encourage fine motor skills!

  1. This is so cute! My youngest son actually started almost the same project in preschool last week! They weren’t dry in time to bring home on Friday, but he showed it to me at pickup. He can’t wait to bring it home to hang in his room for his first decoration in there for the season!

  2. My niece and nephew are all over projects like this. It’s kind of driving their parents crazy LOL but the kids love it. Will forward this just in time for Halloween.

  3. So cute as always! And those are perfect books to pair with it! My youngest especially loves the Mouse book you featured above.

  4. I love doing these types of crafts in my classroom (I teach 3 years old) because it seems easy but it boosts motor skills!
